Who benefits from the global economy

Globalized world economy - who benefits from global textile production?


T-shirts for less than 5 euros: What pleases one customer is a nuisance for other consumers. Pictures and reports of catastrophic working conditions in the textile industry in Bangladesh are too present - but there are also counterexamples.

Does the price of 5 euros for a t-shirt reflect the real cost? Or are we more likely to achieve our prosperity at the expense of other countries? Are the customers of the industrialized countries the globalization winners, while the seamstresses in the developing countries are the globalization losers?

The diverse materials encourage the students to take a well-founded position
and to a critical review of their own textile consumption.
